CELEBRATING BOND’S GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY WITH THE INCREDIBLE BLU-RAY COLLECTION BOND 50

Fancy seeing all 22 of the James Bond films like you’ve never seen them before – with incredible eye-popping picture and crystal clear sound – in one cool box set? Well now, finally, you can.

To celebrate Bond’s golden anniversary, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment announced today at CES (the Consumer Electronics Show for anyone not up on their acronyms) in Las Vegas that BOND 50, a collectible box set featuring all of the films from the franchise – from DR. NO to QUANTUM OF SOLACE – will be available for the first time in one offering.

This special collection also features the high definition Blu-ray debut of nine of the James Bond films and includes more than 130 hours of bonus features (with some new and exclusive content) all packaged up in one super-sleek collectable box set. It’s available for worldwide pre-order today from participating online retailers.

Acclaimed Bond directors John Glen (five Bond films including FOR YOUR EYES ONLY, OCTOPUSSY, A VIEW TO A KILL, THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS and LICENCE TO KILL), Martin Campbell (GOLDENEYE, CASINO ROYALE) and Michael Apted (THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH) with special guests Olga Kurylenko (QUANTUM OF SOLACE) and Caterina Murino (CASINO ROYALE) made the Blu-ray announcement today during a Directors’ Panel discussion in the Panasonic Booth at CES.

“With all 22 feature films available on Blu-ray in one collection for the first time this is a great way for fans to catch up on 007’s epic journey before Skyfall hits theaters next Fall,” said Michael Brown, Senior Vice President, MGM Home Entertainment. “Now viewers can enjoy the intense action of the innovative franchise in the most immersive home experience possible.”
